Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Deborah, child's age 12

My son is 12 years old. He plays on the schools basketball team, soccer team, and started going to the gym a couple times a week for cardio. However, he weighs 180. He is almost 6 feet tall and already wears a size 11 shoe. The doctor has never even mentioned his weight. Even though he is active I am starting to get very concerned. Any suggestions?
